Ratings for Dr. Robert Tang-Wai
When I first saw him the first few times, he came across as someone that appears to be rude. However, after going to him for so many years, I find he has his good days and bad like all, and when he gets comfortable with a patient he is actually quite a funny guy. We do not know exactly what his culture is like or how he was raised. However, if you do what you are told to and are respectful and nice, he will respect you back forever. His wife is a very pleasant and sweet woman as well. The office may not be tidy with the boxes, however I later found out that he does not like keeping files of patients on the computer. Nothing wrong there! There are people who are still old school like that.
Dealt with Tang-wai, Didn't have too hard of a time understanding him, and he took the time to answer all our questions. bedside manner could stand an improvement, but the guy has been working many many years. The condition of the office it awful. The stench is overpowering, and the clutter is overwhelming! I don't understand how this office is so dirty??? Isn't there a standard they have to adhere too? The condition of the office is enough to turn me off. Our standards for health care should be reflected here, and it isn't.
I went to dr tang wai today and just want to say that reading these reviews was the worst idea! I went in scared because of what I read but ended being very happy! He's a very nice man and his wife is very kind as well.. I could understand him fine also!
I went to Dr. Tang-Wai 30 years ago, because there were noother options for me. I was a pre-teen, and he horrified my mother and terrified me. My main memories are of a rude, mean man who I couldn't understand. What I do know for sure is that I spent ten years diagnosed as idiopathic epilepsy and therefore was never under control. As soon as I got a new neurologist in another city, I was diagnosed correctly, my meds were changed, and I was finally under control. I was not impressed, but moved on. This week I learned my niece has to see a neurologist. I was horrified that she might have to go to him as well, but thankfully she's driving past Brandon straight to a specialist in Winnipeg. Dr Tang-Wai not only has well documented bad manners, he's a poor diagnostician in my experience.
Doctor Tang-Wai was very professional. I had a little trouble at times understanding him but if I did, he repeated the question and I would understand the second time. When I first entered his office he asked me to remove my hat and shoes which was not a problem for me. He did his testing including the shocking and poking which did not hurt at all. The poking did not break skin or draw blood and I have a massage shocker and the shocking was no worse than that. We even had a bit of a visit afterwards. I have gone to far worse specialists than Dr. Tang-Wai. I have nothing bad to say about this man. Thankyou
My appointment with him was THE WORST doctor's apt I've ever had and I have never met a more rude individual. Office is cluttered and dirty. He was extremely condescending while I was trying to explain to him my symptoms. He took every chance he had to cut me off or make me feel stupid. I am a tough person and I was choking back tears my whole visit. I d on't care who you are or how good of Doctor you are you have to make your patients feel at ease and comfortable. Horrific. The only thing that made me feel okay is realizing be treats his wife the exact same way.
This Dr. is the most rude and disrespectful human being(let alone doctor) I have ever met. I was called a liar to my face on numerous occasions(until hospital records were checked, proving him wrong) and once he found out the actual story he refused to even apologize. Let's just say his bed side manner is lacking(or non existing). If I had any advice for this man, it would be to find a job in the medical field where patient interaction is not required.
I have been seeing Dr. Tang Wai for almost a year. I was diagnosed with a rare neurological disorder. After reading the reivews on here I was terrified to see Dr. Tang Wai, I was 21 and thought he was going to make me cry. However, after seeing him for the first time I my attitude changed. Since, than I see Dr. Tang Wai every 6 weeks to 2 months and have been extremely impressed with him. He remembers who i am and we end up having a chat after my appointment. He has met my mom and sister and was extremely nice. I do not have a bad a thing to say about this man. He is wonderful and I owe my good health to him. Because of him I did not have to get surgery!
